Dear Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown of Ohio,

 

My name is Amanda Curless and I am a proud citizen of Cincinnati, Ohio. I have started a petition for you both to hold a town hall here in Cincinnati, Ohio where many concerned citizens would like their voices to be heard by those that represent us in congress. 

We have been shown by our Representatives recently that they do not care if they turn off their phones, discard our letters, and ignore our voices. The result of their inaction was the hastily passed house bill H.R.1628 - American Health Care Act of 2017 and our voices were silenced with each vote to pass that bill which could strip away the healthcare of millions, be the cause of millions of deaths, and at the same time create protections for congress from the loss of health care, and would be detrimental to the state of Ohio and the current opioid problems we face as a state. Are the members of congress not also American citizens to be affected by legislature they pass through, or are they now deemed Kings who can protect themselves from the downfalls of their own laws they pass? It is time the law is made by the citizens of this country and based on their voices instead of lobbyists who guarantee decisions with monetary support.

I am calling you both to hold a town hall here in Cincinnati, Ohio where I can introduce you as the average citizen I am, to the many voters of greater Cincinnati who are the reason you hold office currently. There, you can listen to my story (and many others) about how legislation like H.R.1628 - American Health Care Act of 2017 goes against everything that the United States stands for and the many other issues currently in legislation that we believe need to be addressed. 

This petition hereby demands a town hall to be held in Cincinnati, Ohio where both Senator Rob Portman and Senator Sherrod Brown would be present and would listen and discuss concerns by any citizens of Ohio in attendance. 

Consider this your administration calling you to show up for the duties you were elected to perform so that you may in turn continue to receive your paycheck. 

 

Sincerely,

Amanda Curless, Concerned Clermont County Resident and US Citizen
